Ben excelled himself for Flynn's 3rd birthday in Nov 09 with this exploding volcano. The volcano is a meringue with pink, orange and red coloured cream 'bubbling' out of the crater. This rather complicated and involved project included customising a baking tray using steel cutting tools to make a hole in it so a bowl could be inserted! This created a mould to shape the meringue over. Once the candles were blown out, the kids all took turns cracking open the volcano's shell to get their volcanic rocks (aka lumps of chocolate brownie) from inside... the kids loved it!
